    Description

    22 hours of data added along with a completely new 3nm O3 set of data per panel. I boosted my RGB signal at the detrimint of the overall image. I'm very pleased with this result. Here's the 22 hours of Hydrogen to show it's skeleton and the 22 Hours of HALRGBO3 data to highlight this beautiful area.

    Thanks for looking!
